ESPN’s Chad Ford reports that the Sixers, who hold both the No. 3 and No. 10 picks in the upcoming draft, are willing to part with the No. 3 pick and Thaddeus Young. Wiggins is also believed to prefer playing for the Sixers over all the teams that have early picks.
In addition, Ford claims the Milwaukee Bucks have settled on Jabari Parker at No. 2. There has been speculation that the Cavs like Joel Embiid more than any other player, so they could — in theory — benefit from the Sixers being desperate to assure themselves the opportunity to draft Wiggins. If the Cavs were planning to take Embiid and the Bucks are set on Parker, they could still draft Embiid at No. 3 and acquire Young as a bonus.
As Eye on Basketball noted, trading the No. 1 pick to Philly would only make sense for the Cavs if they have given up on using it to acquire Kevin Love. It’s also possible that some sort of three-team deal could be worked out if the Cavs want Love, the Timberwolves want multiple picks and the Sixers want the top pick, but that would be a complicated scenario.
